Called “2G Tuesdays,” the program is set up to ask employees, on their Facebook news feeds, if they want to use the slower connection. Of course, the company still wants...

Did Kepler Find An Alien Signal?

The fascinating speculation surrounding a recent Kepler observation of a star 1,500 light-years away has reignited questions of alien life in our universe and what it means for future studies. First I really want to emphasize, as I did in my previous blog about KIC 8462852, that the root cause of a very strange Kepler transit signal is most likely due to natural phenomena. (A transit occurs when an exoplanet — or, in this case, something else — drifts in front of its star and Kepler detects a...

AMD CPU Designer Heads To Samsung

The brains behind some key CPU designs in AMD and Apple has defected to Samsung. Jim Keller, who has been behind some of the biggest CPU core design projects with AMD and Apple has walked away from designing AMD’s Zen CPU. The move should be a blow as we think AMD needs all the help it can get at the moment, and Zen is either going to save the company or be its swan song. Samsung will use Keller to design newer, bigger chips, or perhaps even smaller, low-power chips, as the company gears up for...
